At CAMMAC, we promise you a relaxing, non-competitive environment, where you can play, meet people who share the same passions, learn from dedicated teachers, and discover new repertoire in our workshops and concerts. Can’t read music? No problem! Pair up with a veteran singer and follow along easily!

Our goal is simple: for you to immerse yourself in our musical environment and have fun. No small feat—but we are proud to say new recruits often tell us CAMMAC has changed their lives!

CAMMAC Music Centre

Over the summer, you can choose from seven different week-long programs at the Music Centre, each with its own theme: classical music, chamber music, jazz, Broadway, choir, Celtic music, and orchestra. Each week, the following courses are also offered: recorder, choir, chamber music or small ensembles, percussion or Orff, dance, and yoga or drawing. You can also choose to sign up for our Thanksgiving weekend. Finally, grandparents and grandchildren are invited to come spend an unforgettable March Break with us in the beautiful Laurentians!
